Tell us about your business!

Petit de la Créme was born in 2013 in A Guarda, Galicia, in the North of Spain. It started as a project among friends: Yhotanan Photographer, Nuria Photographer, and Alberto, Graphic Designer, who shared artistic interests, adventures, and a love for music, as well as enjoying traveling and exploring .

 It's been a long journey, and 11 years later, we feel lucky to have a career in something we enjoy and are passionate about.

What would you like couples to know about you?

Our priority is for each couple to fully enjoy their wedding day. It's essential to us that they have fun so we can do our job better. We understand it may sound cliché, but for us, each couple is special and unique, just like their families. We are aware of the effort and dedication required to organize every detail leading up to the wedding day.

To provide a quality service, we limit the number of weddings we cover each year. In the case of weddings outside of Spain, both Nuria and Yoni, the main photographers, personally handle the coverage along with the complete editing work.

Where are you based?

We live in the North of Spain in Galicia, between the countryside and the city. It's a very special place because we live by the sea and on the border with Northern Portugal. In five minutes, we can cross countries, and we're close to Porto's international airport,  it's an amazing place to live.

Do you travel for weddings?

“From Galicia to the world” whether it is on a van or on a plane, we love to travel and we will go anywhere where our services are required.

How would you describe your style?

Our special recipe includes being natural, capturing the candid moments and a documentary-like style: we take a peek from the trends but we want to keep our images timeless. We love colour and we take good care of it while editing: we seek for a dynamic and organic image that transmits. Last but not least, the spicy piece: we love to add a crazy fun touch, especially to the party shots.

What is your most memorable career moment?

Probably our first wedding abroad which was in London, beyond what it meant being our first international wedding, we will keep it in our hearts forever. They trusted us and made us feel like part of the family.

What inspires you?

We have always been friends before partners in the “Petit” business. We are very different from each other but nevertheless we complement each other because we have a lot of things in common: music, fashion, photography, nature, handcrafting, cinema, markets, exploring the city and the mountains… we are able to find inspiration around us and if it comes with a good cup of coffee or tea, everything flows.

What motivates you to do what you do?

A couple of years ago, there was this bride’s grandpa, he was over 90 years of age and crossed the Atlantic from Argentina to Galicia to attend his granddaughter’s wedding. At a certain time during the party, he sincerely told us: Thank you for the work you do, the more photos you take, the more memories you leave us. What we felt at the time, the real value of our photos… we could take incredible shots but the most important thing is the people, their memories and their love.

How would you describe your working style?

The best adjective ever used to describe our job was: You are like ninjas! Ha ha ha! We are both simple people, we try to camouflage among the guests so that they can completely feel comfortable with us. We observe what’s happening around us, we anticipate the action and take a whole lot of shots… but above all, we smile.

Do you shoot digitally, on film or both?

Both, we like to use a little bit of both worlds in our coverage, we usually have some film cameras and digital ones, too.

Do you have custom packages according to individual needs?

We actually have two pretty complete packs but we are always open to make a customized one for whatever the customers need.

Where would you love to travel to for work?

Mmm. That’s a tricky question, we are going to answer separately!

Nuria: I would love to photograph a wedding in Japan, both a traditional one and a crazy themed wedding, too. Tokyo is my favorite city in the world.

Yhonatan: A snowed environment… it would be amazing to photograph a wedding in the Norwegian Fjords.

Who is your dream client?

The one who, the day before the celebration, decides: “This is it, time to delegate and have fun” and simply lets it flow and enjoys the day fully.

What is your advice to couples getting married?

It has to do with the previous answer. There’s a point where you cannot organize or control anything else. It’s better to delegate, let it flow and enjoy. And if something goes sideways, let it go and keep on enjoying the moment because there will be very few moments in your life such as this one with all your loved ones in the same place celebrating you.
